Tyron Lue to become Sixers’ Head Coach, voted as ‘Prime Candidate’.

Tyron Lue will become the next head coach of the Philadelphia 76ers, as the Cleveland Cavaliers and Philadelphia 76ers agreed to a trade on Thursday evening. The Cavs agreed to ship Joel Embiid and Dario Šarić in exchange for Derrick Rose, Justin Patton, a future first-round draft pick and a 2020 second-round pick.

Lue led Cleveland’s NBA team from the front court and finished with an 82-89 record over four seasons. He was voted as one of “Prime Candidates” by Sports Illustrated when they released their list of top NBA coaches last season.

Lue led Cleveland to the NBA Finals in 2016, but the team was defeated by a dominant Golden State Warriors squad. He served as an assistant coach for the Los Angeles Lakers during the 2010-11 season before being promoted to the head coach position after Mike Brown was fired.

The 33-year-old has never been a traditional head coach at any level, but he did help Lebron James and Kyrie Irving reach two straight NBA Finals appearances. Lue’s leadership skills were questioned after Irving informed him that he wanted to be traded last year.

Lue had to win the locker room back before the series against the Boston Celtics started, and he did leading the Cavs to a sweep of Boston in Game 4. Cleveland was eliminated by Toronto in Game 6 of round two after LeBron James fouled out in the final quarter.

Sixers Need A Defensive Coach:

The Sixers need a defensive coach that can develop their young players on that side of the ball. Brett Brown, while being well respected by his players, is not always disciplined with his schemes and game management. Lue will be able to make quick adjustments as he has been a part of some of the NBA’s top defensive systems over his career.

Sixers Need Personality:

Evan Turner is entering the last year of his contract and the Sixers are rumored to be dealing him this offseason. Getting someone like Tyron Lue will give everyone an edge going into the next few seasons as well as help in making sure the locker room stays happy. Philadelphia has yet to have a lot of big personalities, even if they have some players that are able to make headlines. The Sixers lack a winning culture and need someone with a positive outlook for their team and players.

Lue has coached at all levels from high school to college, but he was mostly known for his work with LeBron James during their time together in Cleveland from 2010-16.

He will be taking over for Brown, who has been with the team since 2011-12, and has a career record of 229-216.

Brown and his staff have coached through the collapses of Eric Gooden, Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner. Brown was able to keep things together during the 2015 playoffs when he took over for Doug Collins with a 41-41 record. The Sixers lost to Atlanta in seven games in that series after blowing a 3-1 lead. The Sixers were swept by Toronto in round two of last year’s playoffs, but won six straight games against Boston during that time period after trading for Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward before the game three loss in Cleveland.
